| TENTATIVE SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT
Term of the Agreement: 2013-14 through 2014-15
The PFT/PUSD IBPS Fiscal Group has worked together throughout the year monitoring the District budget beginning with the 2012-13 true-up process. In that process, we took a look back to see if the expenditures for teachers for the 2007-08 year (the last year before the state budget cuts) were on target.
From the 2012-13 true-up, we continued to look at the District budgeting process for 2013-14 year as the Budget Assumptions and First Interim Budget reports were issued. These reports are snapshots of the financial conditions of the District at two points during the fiscal year to make assumptions about PFT expenditures and total unrestricted revenue.
Your PFT members of the IBPS team, Candy Smiley, Kelly Logan, Joe McEachron and Greg Strachan are proud to announce that we have reached a tentative agreement for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years (with reopeners for wages, Heath and Welfare and any other sections either party requests in 2014-15, Section V of this agreement). The IBPS members feel that the agreement strikes a very good balance between supporting both people and program. Your IBPS team urges you to support this agreement when the teachers vote to ratify on March 11 and 12, 2014. Click here to read full Tentative Settlement Agreement

Who we are and what we stand for!
During the industrial era workers suffered poor working conditions, discrimination over gender, race and class, low wages, with no power or control in the work place, and political restrictions - No Voice! Unions were viewed as “agents” of reform, the champion for fairness and due process, dignity of all work and workers, economic opportunity, and social justice for all. Because of collective bargaining, middle class values were now attainable: safe working conditions, a decent wage, health and welfare benefits, and a safety net for workers (pension and tenure).
